thompson does a wonderful job in creating a cast of characters in this book that are both believable and have a great amount of depth. however, the novel seemed to have three separate stories that never really fit in together. thompson does a decent job of making these three disparate stories crash together in one, intense scene, but i left the novel wishing that i could have gotten the entire story behind mitch and josie, or harvey and his fascination with the weather channel, or the wanderer who stumbles into their lives. the loose ends in the novel seemed to tie themselves up a little too nicely at the end of the novel. to describe how i feel about the book as a whole, it was like chasing after the ice cream man as a little boy. i hear the music and i quickly lift myself to my feet. i grab some change and i race out the door as fast as i can. excited, full of anticipation, and loving the thrill of the chase, i feel free and alive as i chase the ice cream man down. and when the ice cream man finally stops, he tells me that all he has left is vanilla ice cream cones. i eat the vanilla ice cream, and it's good because it is so hot outside and the ice cream is cold. but it's vanilla and it's not anywhere near as exciting as a bomb pop or strawberry eclaire.
